Hoteliers want regional summit on tourism
NASSAU, Bahamas, Jan 19, CMC – Regional tourism officials are calling on Caribbean heads of government to convene a regional summit on tourism within the next six months to discuss key issues affecting the industry.
In a resolution approved by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association's (CHTA) board of directors on Sunday, the Caribbean leaders are being urged to consider with industry leaders all major aspects of tourism including airlift, travel facilitation, marketing, visitor security, human resource development, the environment and new ways to encourage economic growth through a common approach to the problems facing the industry.
"Such a summit would enable the Caribbean, as the most tourism dependent region in the world, to address global competition and return to the levels of success last seen in 2006," the CHTA said in a statement.
